It's Tuesday and thus, time for you Tuesdays' Tools segment.  I have chosen to share one of Ella's favorite items in the stamping drawer.  Sponge Daubers!  I think she likes them because she can put a full pack on her fingers like olives. 

You can use them with your pastels, ink pads, but I usually pair them up with glossy paper like I have done with this sample.  I stayed in the Old Olive, Taken with Teal and Dusty Durango vein and have created another "teenage" boy card.  Have I mentioned that I'm SO jazzed that I have this Extreme Snowboarder stamp?  It was one of my FREE Sale-a-bration choices last month.    I first ran my glossy paper through the Big Shot with a Texture Plate, then stamped the Snowboarder with Basic Gray and let him dry.  Once the image was dry, I donned my daubers.  I inked them in the appropriate color and just squiggled down the paper.  Fun card in honor of the Winter Olympics Snowboard Team and a certain 10 year old boy that thinks that stuff is SOOOOO cool.

    • Stamps:  Extreme Snowboarder #(115117), On Your Birthday (#111664)  Inks:  Taken with Teal, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Dusty Durango (in-color!).  CS:  Same as inks and with Glossy,  Misc:  Sponge Daubers, Crop-a-dile, Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets (108431) 
    • I used direct to paper with the Chocolate Chip pad to get more of a rustic edgy feel with the sponged ink.  Using a dauber would have given a softer more feminine look.
